Sweet apples plus savory bacon equals a perfect quiche. We added a whole chopped poblano pepper last time and it complemented it very well.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Press pie crust into the bottom and up the sides of an 11-inch tart pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and let cool.

  • Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble.

  • Heat bacon grease in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add apple and cook until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in bacon.

  • Whisk milk, sour cream, eggs, sea salt, and cinnamon together in a bowl.

  • Layer apple mixture, Cheddar cheese, and egg mixture in the prepared crust. Sprinkle sage over top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.

Cook's Notes:

You can use butter instead of bacon grease, and ham instead of bacon.

Follow individual package instructions for baking pie crust.

I omitted the cinnamon becauseit does not flavor blend with sage. The prebake on the pie crust led it to be overcooked. I will make a riff on this recipe in the future but not going to make again. Read More

I substituted a pound of Jamestown mild sausage (browned and well drained) for the bacon and omitted the cinnamon. A definite keeper! Perfect for a hearty brunch. Read More

Whole family loved! Peeled and chunked 1 gala apple, sauteed in butter (next time I will saute in meat grease but I was in a hurry), diced whole sweet onion and cooked with 1# Italian sausage (only put 3/4 mixture into quiche), cubed tiny pieces of smoked cheddar into quiche, sage was awesome and not too strong, topped it all with more grated smokey cheddar. Prebaked pie crust 10 min 350 (could've used a little longer) Whole quiche baked 35 min 325 and was set and done perfect. Read More

I didn't peel the apples and used "Grandma's Secret Pie Crust." The kids ate all and the kitchen smelled like a farmhouse this morning. Read More

So I made this for brunch on Christmas day. It turned out perfect. I used a pre-made pie shell which worked perfect. The mix of apple and bacon was a great combination. I didn't alter the recipe and no problems happened. I am looking forward to making it again. Read More

Love this recipe, however, I would change the addition of salt as it was too salty. I also think sautéing the apples in the bacon grease adds to the saltiness. I'll make again but definitely make some changes to the recipe. Read More

A good flavor combination. Definitely needs a higher temperature to cook or add time. Also, used Granny Smith apples. Not as sweet as I would have liked. Still a very tasty dinner. Read More
